A rock island just 40 minutes from Koh Chang. Although above the water here is no life, below the water this site is teeming with fish. A large platform at 4-6 meters is covered in soft corals with gulleys to explore. Around the island in deeper (18m) water you can find large schools of batfish, barracuda and trevelly. Often larger pelagics are seen here and the occasional whale shark if you are very lucky. Visibility here can get up to 30-40 meters in high season. A great dive site whether you have many dives or if it is your first.

A coral pinnacle that just sticks above the water. Visibility up to 35 meters is often experienced during high season letting you really appreciate this site. Hin Luk Bat drops down to around 18 meters and is covered in hard coral such as cathedral coral, staghorn corals and table corals. For the more experienced diver there are a lot of swim throughs. Greater barracuda and king mackerel are often seen here that get up to around 2 meters long! Schools of batfish and yellow tailed barracuda along with all the other reef fish cover this site and offer a great opportunity for naturalists and photographers. One of the best dive sites on a good day!!
